Novogradac & Company is currently accepting nominations for its inaugural Community Development Individual Achievement Awards. The awards were created to recognize those who demonstrate substantial dedication to the advancement of community envelopment, policy and legislative priorities. Winners will have made a significant impact in the community development field and will be honored on June 11.
The Community Development Individual Achievement Awards join several other Novogradac awards programs that recognize demonstrated excellence in the fields of renewable energy, community development, historic preservation and affordable housing. Winners will be announced in three categories: Federal Legislator of the Year, State Legislator of the Year and Public Executive of the Year. Nominations are judged in four key areas: vision, leadership, innovation and impact.
“We’re proud to announce the inaugural round of the Novogradac Journal of Tax Credits Community Development Individual Achievements Awards,” Nicolo Pinoli, conference chairman and partner in Novogradac’s Portland, Oregon office said in a press release announcing the awards. “We look forward to recognizing the efforts of the men and women who have given families across the country the tools to take the future into their own hands.”
The deadline for nominations is March 12. Winners will be recognized at Novogradac’s New Markets Tax Credit Conference in Washington, DC and be featured in the 80-page Journal of Tax Credits, Novogradac’s monthly publication that includes features on technical tax credit issues, developments and more, written by credit industry experts.
